Hello Dear Reader! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. This weekend we celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary, my oldest daughter flew into town for an early birthday, & my oldest son came home from college for all the festivities. Needless to say it was a SUPER BUSY weekend. Lots of driving, good times and laughs.
"So Balls", you say, "super happy for you, but what happened on the show last week!"
Thank you Dear Reader, keeping me on track as always.
TUESDAY OCTOBER 18TH
We had an amazing week on Tales from the Field. We kicked off the show with our special guest Jes Schultz (Twitter | @grrl_geek). Jes is a Sr. Program Manager on the Azure Data Tools & Experiences Product Group. She had a great opportunity to for those looking to participate in a focus group on the future of the Query Editor for Azure SQL Database. If you are interested in participating, click here.
We played the hosting game. Josh Luedeman (Twitter | @JoshLuedeman) couldn't be with us so Hope Foley (Twitter | @hope_foley) graciously filled in for Josh. Neeraj Jhaveri (Twitter | @Neeraj_Jhaveri) hosted. Our topic was on Interviewing Trick's & Tips. We discussed great things for people to keep in mind when they are interviewing, and tips we've used along the way. Not only did Hope fill in for Josh, but she WON! Josh didn't even show up and he managed to beat Andrés Padilla (Twitter | @Nodestreamio ) and myself. That's the way it works, and Josh will be host next Tuesday!!!
THURSDAY OCTOBER 20TH
Thursday was our Community Round table. Once again, we gathered together. Josh was with us this time, and we reviewed the great posts that YOU the community put together.
